ROCKY RIVER --  The Lutheran West men’s basketball team improved to 16-4 with a 90-38 victory over their sister school Lutheran East.

The Longhorns started strong and rolled to a 27-9 lead after one quarter of play. From that point on, West never looked back and continued to outplay their weaker opponents. They took a 55-19 lead into halftime and came out still playing tough.

Lutheran West was able to take control of the game and not play down to their opponent’s level. Despite the competition, the team played cleanly and kept the ball moving. LW also took advantage of the Falcon’s inexperience and mistakes, something that they struggle to do in some games.

The game was still a good outing for the Longhorns. They were able to work on and improve their play. In addition, many LW players got the opportunity to see the court and contribute to the game, which could be important down the stretch.

In the victory, the ‘Horns also gained confidence on their offense and in their shots while also gaining valuable work on defense.

The team showed a lot of character in this win and showed that their level of play will not falter. They played with the same amount of intensity in this lopsided match-up as they would in any other game.

The Longhorns had four players in double digits and were led by junior Clay Carper with 17. Junior Andrew O’Hara added 12 while seniors Max Quinn and Greg Kunze contributed 10 apiece.

Lutheran West remains undefeated at home and stands at 16-4 overall and 12-3 in PAC-12 action. They face their biggest test of the season in this next match-up at home versus league-leading Columbia.
